Peri-implant fractures of the wrist are uncommon, and usually present as stress fractures distal to the site of the implant. We report an unusual case where the radius has fractured beneath a plate, causing bending and deformity of the implant. This prevented reduction of the fracture under sedation, so urgent intervention became necessary due to neurovascular compromise. 
Closed Management of a Distal Radius Refracture Through a Bent Volar Plate: Can an Open Procedure be Avoided?: A Case Report.
This rare case avoided surgical intervention and its associated risks and costs and attempted closed reduction can be considered a treatment option before open revision fixation, with demonstrated ability for fracture healing in an acceptable position. Expand
Fixation failure of a volar wrist plate following a fall from a standing height
The mechanisms behind this injury, where a volar locking plate, used to manage a previous wrist fracture, bent following a fall from standing height, are discussed, and how this might have been prevented is considered. Expand


Successful closed reduction of refractured wrist with a bent volar distal radius plate.
A case is presented of a 78-year-old woman who sustained a re-fracture of the distal radius after initial fixation with a volar locking plate and a successful closed reduction was performed without hardware failure. Expand
A unique failure mechanism of a distal radius fracture fixed with volar plating--a case report.
A case report of one volar-plate construct requiring revision, secondary to loss of fracture reduction, with no evidence of implant loosening or failure is presented. Expand
Periprosthetic fractures around the femoral stem: overcoming challenges and avoiding pitfalls.
Management of periprosthetic fractures around the femoral stem after total hip arthroplasty (THA) represents a significant challenge and optimal treatment remains controversial. The most commonExpand
Volar plate fixation failure for volar shearing distal radius fractures with small lunate facet fragments.
Volar shearing fractures with separate scaphoid and lunate facet fragments, preoperative lunate subsidence distance, and length of volar cortex available for fixation were significant predictors for loss of reduction; the latter was significant in multivariate analysis. Expand
Mechanical Failure of the Distal Radius Volar Locking Plate
Although mechanical failure of volar locking plate is uncommon, some are potentially preventable and should be treated conservatively. Expand
